After the success of economy, business and WiFi cars, Careem is gearing up to launch Tezz, Careem’s rickshaw initiative.
Now the cultural ride will meet Careem’s affordable rates, safety and comfort.
Careem will initiate this pilot project today in Lahore and Karachi. Tezz will initially be available to limited users at a base rate of only Rs. 60 and a minimum fare of Rs. 75.
Careem said that it aims to expand this project to increase the fleet and introduce more cities in the future.
“Rickshaws are the transport lifeline for Pakistan’s urban populace. They operate out of stands, which makes for highly inefficient dispatching. We are doing a pilot project to see how well our technology can help accentuate the incomes of rickshaw drivers and provide a more economical option for commuters, woven with the ease that our technology provides” said, Junaid Iqbal, MD, Careem Pakistan.
Being the first app-based car booking service to launch a cash-payment option, Careem will enable even more people across society in travelling easily anytime and anywhere.
Inexpensive rates will allow riders to use Careem more often and help contribute in reducing congestion on the roads and keeping the environment clean.
Careem said that it will not compromise on the quality service that everyone loves. All Careem Captains will undergo thorough background checks and customer service trainings while all Tezz vehicles will be inspected as well.
Moreover, user privacy is of utmost priority and will be kept intact as the Captains will not have access to any personal information of the riders.
With about 6 million registered users, Careem aims to break more grounds with time and continue to facilitate its growing customer base.
